Quit biking a few years ago. A couple of weeks ago my wife said "lets get a bike." I said I'm no good with someone sitting sitting behind me, so she bought a 2002 Honda Shadow Spirit, and I bought a 1983 Interstate GL 1100cc. A few problems as it had sat in the snow for a couple of years. Slowly getting them figured out. I'll ask one of the mechanics about a whine I'm getting that comes from the back of the engine and changes with throttle action. Think that may turn into a big problem. Other than that, looking forward to getting back into biking in the Spring. I'm a pansy and won't ride after a couple more years. Winter is starting to set in here in Canada.
